Description

Combine discovery and luxury with a stirring journey through history and gastronomy with this Toronto Royal Ontario Museum gift. Take a private guided tour of the ROM, home to one of the richest collections of natural history and world culture, before indulging in an appetising six-course tasting menu, as specially selected by esteemed head chef Jason Cox, at the fine dining institute Opus Restaurant.

In combining a universal museum of cultures with that of natural history, the Royal Ontario Museum offers a uniquely rich experience in exploring these topics and their fundamental relationships. The museum showcases a diverse range of galleries, from Korean Art, Chinese temple sculptures and a Jamaican bat-cave replica to dinosaurs, Egyptian mummies and the cedar crest poles first carved by First Nations tribes in British Columbia. The "Renaissance ROM"ª project has come to life in a marvellous eruption of architectural jewels, providing a yet more extensive experience.

The private guided tours on this Royal Ontario Museum gift take in an array of themed galleries of your choosing, spanning continents and countless ages. Explore over 4.5 billion years on earth or experience the history of Canada, from the diverse aboriginal cultures, to the influence of the Europeans who came to this land, to The War of 1812 that "made Canada". With admission to the museum included, you are free to peruse the exhibits further, either before or after your tour.

Having satiated your appetite for knowledge, it will be time to discover the gastronomic delights of Toronto's acclaimed Opus Restaurant. With an exquisite six-course tasting menu, created to include the finest in-season ingredients, the modern Continental take is unsurpassed in quality and variety. Brothers Tony and Mario Amaro have been providing the highest quality in all aspects since opening the restaurant over 20 years ago and consult with respected head chef Jason Cox to design the menu.

The six-course tasting menu changes with the seasons, potentially including delectable dishes such as the dreamy oyster gratinee with garlic, parmesan, black truffle and chervil and the palatable lobster ceviche with chili and lime. With an extensive wine list boasting over 2,500 labels that earned the establishment Wine Spectator's coveted 2013 Grand Award, it is little wonder this upscale location is a favourite among the haut monde of Toronto. Set amid a Victorian neighbourhood in the exclusive Yorkville area downtown, with a warm and homely ambience, this dining experience is sure to cap off a remarkable evening in style.
